It’s true that Lionel Messi is known for his skill with the ball rather than his physical strength. But Pulga recently surprised his fans in a video where he is clearly seen lifting weights during a training session with Paris Saint-Germain.
Lionel Messi’s story is unique. The seven-time Golden Ball winner was diagnosed with growth hormone deficiency when he was 11 years old. Despite this, the Argentinian managed to become an elite athlete thanks to daily injections of human growth hormone in his legs, financed by FC Barcelona.
With an impressive career, his training routine has remained quite confidential. Messi is an extremely well-conditioned athlete who puts a lot of time and effort into training. But this is actually the first time he’s been seen lifting dumbbells.
When PSG released a video of their squad training in the club’s gymnasium, a one-second clip of Messi lifting a barbell went viral. “I swear this is the first time I’ve seen him lift dumbbells,” ignites one of the Pulga fans on social networks.
